CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Appalachian Power says it could cost up to $65 million in upgrades to convert each of several recently retired coal-fired plants to natural gas.

The estimate was submitted to West Virginia regulators, according to the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1GvTB2a).

Additionally, the utility told the Public Service Commission why units at four coal-fired plants couldn’t be reopened and why three of the plants weren’t considered for natural gas.

Age is the reason for the closures of the three plants, as well as their inability to meet federal pollution standards, according to Appalachian Power.
